The Crimean parliament responded to the publications of the Turkish media, in which the south of Russia, including the peninsula, was attributed to the Turkish zone of influence. The head of the committee on interethnic relations, Yuri Gempel, said that the demonstrated futuristic map “looks very ridiculous”, like a piece of a science fiction genre.
According to him, Ankara can only be advised “to abandon dreams of Russian territory”, otherwise “it can be overstrained because of such exorbitant appetites.”
Gempel noted that at the time of Crimea’s entry into Ukraine, Turkey “looked closely” to this region and launched propaganda. But “behind-the-scenes games will not work with Russia,” the parliamentarian added.
